    "Oscar-winning directors Joel and Ethan Coen will be riding into the Oscar season this fall with a new film that began life as an anthology series.

    Last year, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs was announced as a Netflix original series that would feature six tales about the American frontier. The project has since morphed into a feature film, though one maintaining a chaptered anthology structure. It’s set for a world premiere in competition at the Venice Film Festival, which has really taken off in recent years as the annual awards season starting gun, before releasing later this year.

    Tim Blake Nelson stars as the eponymous Scruggs. The cast features names like Zoe Kazan, Liam Neeson and Tom Waits, but little is known about the separate stories. Cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel (Inside Llewyn Davis, Darkest Hour) shot the film with the Arri Alexa camera, making Buster Scruggs the Coens’ first-ever digital photography production.

    The film is expected to hit Netflix’s streaming service by year’s end along with the requisite theatrical release to qualify for Oscar consideration."

    Just watched it and loved it, hopefully there'll be a Blu-ray or UHD along shortly.

    I watched this last night. Its a film that isn't a film. At 2h 13m it has the length of of film, but isn't, as its split into 6 separate anthologies. They are all set in the wild west, so it would be easy to call a Western, only it isn't. Its a story about people whose story and lives are only set in the backdrop of the wild west. I can at times be hard to please, so I say this with a deep breath -

    Its as close to a 10/10 as I've ever seen. Highly recommended.

    I thought it was pretty good, but it did suffer from the fact that the best story was the first one so it steadily declined rather than built up to a rousing finish. Not that any of it was bad, but some of it felt a bit like filler. Would happily watch more of the same though.
